Stan James

Online betting site Stan James are running a big promotion for Arsenal v Chelsea betting on Sunday. It is a big London derby and they are focusing on the two major goalscorers going into the match, Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Chelsea’s Diego Costa.

Costa has come to life under Guus Hiddink’s watchful eye, the Spaniard having netted five goals in his last five games for Chelsea in all competitions, four in his last five Premier League matches. So he is on fire and looking like a real handful for any defence to handle.

In contrast you have the flair of Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud who has netted twelve Premier League goals this season leading the line for the Gunners and he always looks a threat, whether the ball is in the air or on the deck.

Stan James are offering Money Back on all losing First/Last Scorer and Correct Score bets up to £25 if Olivier Giroud or Diego Costa scores first in the match.

Some options in the goalscorer markets are Chelsea’s Willian (12/1 first goalscorer) who has become a bit of a dead ball specialist this season, while Arsenal have good options in the likes of Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey (7/1), both with the drive and pace to hurt the Chelsea back line.

In order to qualify you must place a pre-match single bet of £5 or more on the Arsenal v Chelsea Premier League match and the offer only applies to losing pre-match bets placed on the first and last goalscorers and correct score markets. The free bet will be based on your first single bet placed.

It is the big Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship this week where all the big guns are out in force in the United Arab Emirates. Last season Gary Stal overcame Martin Kramer to land the title, coming from ten shots behind the German at one stage of the tournament. But Frenchman Stal carded a brilliant 65 on the final round to overhaul the field.

But is the bigger names in the field who are being heavily backed into the short prices for Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship betting this week and those are Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth who are trading as joint 4/1 favourites in the outrights with online betting site Stan James.

Neither have tasted victory in the tournament before. McIlroy has played two PGA Tour events this season with a T11 at the WGC HSBC Champions back in Novemebr last year and that followed a T26 at the Open. He did land a victory in the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai of course to land the Race To Dubai title at the end of last season on the European PGA.

Spieth has already landed a victory on this season’s PGA Tour with a triumph at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and in some style as well. So it is a mouth watering potential battle between McIlroy and Spieth out in Abu Dhabi this week in the HSBC Golf Championship betting, who will take the title?

Running behind the two powerhouses you have the like of Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson floating around the 14/1 mark, with former winner Martin Kaymer at 18/1 and Branden Grace coming in at 20/1.

Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship Golf Betting Odds

Rory McIlroy 4/1, Jordan Spieth 4/1, Rickie Fowler 14/1, Henrik Stenson 14/1, Martin Kaymer 18/1, Branden Grace 20/1, Byeong Hun An 33/1, Matthew Fitzpatrick 33/1, Danny Willett 33/1, Ian Poulter 35/1, 40/1 bar

Premier League Betting

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Preview

Things are going all the wrong way for the Magpies again after their mini-revival was snapped with back to back defeats. Meanwhile a new dawn appears to have risen for Liverpool who are finding their feet under Jurgen Klopp now and who celebrated having Daniel Sturridge return to the starting line up in midweek with a couple of goals in the League Cup. Can the Reds continue their positive march up the table with three points at St James’ Park?

Online bookmaker Stan James are throwing out free bets this weekend. If you need to sign up to get in on the action, then you can earn a free £10 bonus when you do so. Then, as a Stan James customer, place a real money wager of £5 on Both Teams To Score from selections from this weekend’s Premier League games and in return they will give you a free £5 bet back to use. It doesn’t matter what happens to your original bet, you will still pick up the free one!

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Tips

Tough times still for Newcastle after back to back heavy defeats against Leicester and Crystal Palace. Only rock-bottom Aston Villa have scored fewer goals than Newcastle have managed to net this season. Newcastle have scored 14 goals across the season and six of those all came in one match against Norwich. So that is a lot of games, seven in total, in which Newcastle have failed to score this season. They have only managed the two goals in their last five league outings. At St James Park this season, Newcastle have managed just the one win but their 3-0 loss there last time against Leicester did snap a three match unbeaten streak on home turf (W1 D2).

But they have gone backwards again having conceded eight goals in their last two games. It is worth looking at this one going over 2.5 goals as well, even with Newcastle’s deficiencies in front of goal. Over the goal line will fetch you a price of 8/11 and this is the fixture in the history of the Premier League (which has been contested at least 34 times) that has produced the most goals per game on average (3.14). When it comes to conceding goals in the Premier League, Newcastle have conceded more against Liverpool than they have against any other club. There have been seven red cards in the last seven meetings, the last six all going to Newcastle.

So Liverpool look on the up and up. They have taken convincing wins at Manchester City and Chelsea and they look a better side on the road than at home. That is because they are still struggling to break down defensive teams who turn up at Anfield. But a bit of time and space they can place. Daniel Sturridge made a goalscoring return for the Reds with goals in their League Cup quarter final win and he and Christian Benteke are even money quotes in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. Sturridge has six goals against Newcastle in the top flight, four in his last three against them. Liverpool head to St James’ Park on a four match unbeaten streak on the road (W2 D2).

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 4/7, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 9/2

Newcastle v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool are good value to go and make it three away wins in a row. They look to play with a bit more freedom away from home and they were impressive midweek against Southampton in the League Cup. Newcastle look shambolic again at the back and the superior quality that Liverpool have in their ranks should get the visitors the three points.

It is a big night in the UEFA Champions League for both Arsenal and Chelsea on Tuesday night. The Gunners have to pick up three points at the Emirates against Dinamo Zagreb to keep their slim chances of booking a top two spot in their group. The Gunners have to throw everything at that and hope that Bayern Munich do them a favour too by beating Olympiacos.

Chelsea can confirm qualification for the knockout stages of this season’s competition with a win on the road at Maccabi Tel Aviv. The Blues head to Israel for the points needed to move through, even though they will need some help in trying to overhaul group leaders FC Porto who are three points ahead of them heading into Match Day Five.

Place a single bet on any market at 2/1 or greater on the Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb vs Maccabi Tel Aviv v Chelsea match and if it goes on to win, Stan James match your stake as a free bet up to £25.

Some ideas for qualifying bets are Chelsea’s game going over 3.5 goals for a price of 23/10 with Stan James, the Blues beating the Israeli outfit 4-0 back at the Bridge. While Olivier Giroud, who has scored nine goals in his last eleven games for Arsenal, is the same price to open the scoring at the Emirates.

The Offer only applies to pre-event SINGLE bets that are settled as a winner at 2/1 (3.00) or greater on any pre-event marketing and is available through to 19:45 Tuesday 24th November 2015 (BST). Register a new account with Stan James and earn a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus.

Champions League Betting

Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb Betting Preview

Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for the next round of the UEFA Champions League will rest on Olympiacos not earning a point against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. If the Greeks achieve that then Arsenal will be out no matter what. All the Gunners can do is win their home fixture against Dinamo Zagreb and hope for the best. The Croatians ended a sixteen year wait for a UEFA Champions League group stage win when they beat the Gunners on Match Day One. Can they heap some more misery on Arsene Wenger’s depleted troops?

Online betting site Stan James are running a good promotion for your Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb UEFA Champions League betting. Place a wager on the game on any market before kick off at 2/1 odds or greater and if that bet wins then they will give you a free bet back, matching the value of your winning stake! The maximum free bet is £25. Register an account with Stan James and earn a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus. This offer also applies to Maccabi Tel Aviv v Chelsea.

Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb Betting Tips

Qualification for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions is out of Arsenal’s own hands. All they can do is keep winning and hope to squeeze past Olympiakos, the Greeks needing just a point on Wednesday to move through. The Gunners have to bank a home win here and so far at the Emirates in the group stage this season they have lost 3-2 against Olympiacos and beat Bayern Munich 2-0. But combined with the loss at Dinamo Zagreb and a pounding on the road at Bayern Munich, the Gunners find themselves level on just three points with the Croatians. Arsenal have earned just one clean sheet in their last six matches and with their growing injury list, the game could be worth backing to go over 2.5 goals at a 4/9 quote.

Zagreb have to have a go at them as they have nothing to lose as they need Bayern to lose to keep their chances alive of making the top two. It was against the Croatians that things went wrong right at the very start of the group stage for Arsenal, losing 2-1 in Zagreb. Arsenal became the first ever English side to lose against them and given their shock home defeat against Olympiacos, they may have their doubters for this one. Arsenal have won just six of their last 13 home matches played in the main draw of the UEFA Champions League. At least they have Olivier Giroud in form who has netted nine goals in his last eleven games in all competitions and is a 4/6 anytime goalscorer quote for the game.

Arsenal took a 3-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb in their only previous visit there before this season, which was back in the 2006 UEFA Champions League qualifiers. Their only other visit to Croatia was against Hajduk Split in the 1978 UEFA Cup, the Gunner losing 2-1 then. Zagreb saw a long 16 year wait for a victory in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League end when they beat Arsenal on Match Day One, that’s how big it was for them. Their nine previous games against English sides had read D2 L7 for them. They have failed to take a single point since beating Arsenal and on the road they were thumped 5-0 at Bayern Munich and lost 2-1 at Olympiacos. The lost all three of their away games the last time they were in the Group stage which was in 2012/13.

Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb Betting Odds

Arsenal 2/9, Draw 6/1, Dinamo Zagreb 14/1

Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb Predictions

Zagreb really aren’t up to the quality needed to compete in the UEFA Champions League and that win over the Gunners came from nowhere. Look for both teams to score because Arsenal are struggling for clean sheets but go for an Arsenal win in a game over 2.5 goals. The Gunners have to throw the kitchen sink at this one and Zagreb don’t have the away record to withstand them.

Premier League Betting

Chelsea v Norwich Betting Preview

Looking at the stats in the premier league table there’s really nothing much to split these. Norwich are one place and one point above the Blues and both have produced a W1 D1 L4 record in their last six played. With both of them hovering just above the drop zone this is a strange game and a strange situation to see Chelsea in. Can they get going after the international break or do Norwich have it in them to cause Mourinho more blues at the Bridge?

Grab yourself a free bet at online betting site Stan James this weekend thanks to a new offer. Just place a £5 fourfold or bigger acca on this weekend’s Premier League’s Both Teams To Score market and you will get a free £5 bet back, regardless of if your wager wins or loses.

Chelsea v Norwich Betting Tips

There are no easy games it would seem for Chelsea. That is three defeats on the bounce now for the reigning champions and things haven’t looked too much like improving. They are out of sorts at the back and lack any confidence and conviction going forward. With just one win in their last six, they are not instilling a lot confidence in backers. They go off as a very short price here meaning that punters will probably avoid them. They have gone undefeated in their last eleven matches against Norwich in all competitions, winning eight of them. The time they failed to score in a league home match was actually against Norwich, 25 Stamford Bridge top flight fixtures ago back at the end of the 2013/14 Premier League season.

Chelsea have allowed more shots on target against them than any other team from inside the penalty area this season (49) and they have also dropped the joint-most points from leading positions in the top flight this season (eight along with Aston Villa). Diego Costa isn’t firing well for Chelsea at the moment but he is even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market. Eden Hazard is a 3/2 shot and he has scored two goals in four Premier League appearances against Norwich, with one of those goals coming in his only start against the Canaries (October 2012). With the Blues having earned just two clean sheets this season it will be worth having a punt at both teams to score for a quote of 5/6 with Stan James as the Canaries have netted in all but two of their league games this term.

Norwich snapped a six match winless streak in the top flight with a 1-0 home win over Swansea just before the international break. That was a much needed win and only their third of the season. It was also the first clean sheet that they have picked up this season. So they aren’t defensively sound which should give Chelsea chances. But Norwich are positive enough to cause Chelsea issues at the Bridge. Dieumerci Mbokani has been involved in three of the Canaries’ last five Premier League goals (scored two, one assist). He is 7/2 to get a goal on the board on Saturday. Norwich have failed to score in two of their last four visits to the Bridge and in total conceded eleven goals in those four games. It is worth having a look over 2.5 goals for a price of 8/11.

Chelsea v Norwich Betting Odds

Chelsea 2/5, Draw 15/4, Norwich 7/1

Chelsea v Norwich Predictions

Chelsea need to get themselves firing after losing a whopping seven games already this season in the top flight. They don’t look a particularly confident side and Norwich will probably cause them a few scares at the back. Given their unpredictability and three defeats on the bounce, the Blues aren’t a great price to be backing at this point so go and look for goals in the game instead by backing both teams to score at 5/6.

Champions League Betting

Manchester United v CSKA Moscow Betting Preview

Things are pretty tight in Group B with United level on points with the Russians, trailing group leaders Wolfsburg by two points. So an important three points up for grabs at Old Trafford but with United struggling badly for goals at the moment, can they bring their shooting boots to the party and put a win on the board? The last goal they scored was a fortnight ago with Anthony Martial equalising against CSKA Moscow for a 1-1 draw.

Online betting site Stan James have a UEFA Champions League betting promotion for Manchester United v CSKA Moscow. Back a first goalscorer selection in the game and if he scores second in the match instead of first, then the bookmaker will give you your money back, as cash, up to the value of £25! Register an account with Stan James and they will give you a free £10 bet welcome bonus.

Manchester United v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips

So it’s been fruitless effort after fruitless effort from Manchester United since they last met with CSKA Moscow. Since that 1-1 draw where Anthony Martial rescued a point for them, United have played out three 0-0 draws on the bounce in all competitions which is their longest such run since 2005. They also drew the one preceding that: 1-1 with CSKA. So four draws in a row and not much sign of life. Manchester United have never won a home game against Russian opposition, having drawn the three previous occasions that they welcome a side from Russia to Old Trafford. Overall they have faced Russian opposition eight times (all venues) and have posted just a W1 D6 L1 record. With United not scoring at the moment and potentially missing Anthony Martial, this may be a low scoring game and a drawn outcome may not be far from the picture.

CKSA Moscow and Manchester United have met three times before, United holding W1 D2 head to head lead. United are doing well enough at home though in UEFA competition fixtures to put a win on the board. They are unbeaten in their last seven and have won six of those at Old Trafford. This season they posted a home win over Club Brugge in the play-off round and carded a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Wolfsburg as well. If he makes it, Martial is a 5/4 anytime goalscorer quote, with the under-fire Wayne Rooney at 6/4. Stan James have priced under 2.5 goals at 4/5 which looks reasonable. Just one of United’s last seven goals at home in the UEFA Champions League have come from open play.

CSKA Moscow have suffered seven defeats in their last eight UEFA Champions League proper matches. That makes United’s draw with them even more disappointing for the Premier League club. The Russians picked up a surprise win on their last visit to England when they beat Man City 3-2 at the Etihad just last November to record their first ever victory on English soil. Seydou Doumbia netted a brace in that one and it means that he has scored each of the last four goals that the Russians have scored in England. You can back Doumbi as an 11/4 anytime goalscorer. They shouldn’t be a big threat to United as they have lost two of their three Champions League away games this season (including qualifying). But they may be stubborn opposition holding a W1 D3 L2 record in England.

Manchester United v CSKA Moscow Betting Odds

Manchester United 4/7, Draw 16/5, CSKA Moscow 11/2

Manchester United v CSKA Moscow Predictions

It’s hard to put a lot of betting faith in Manchester United at the moment, but it may be tempting for them to just come through this given their good home record in Europe. They may struggle to break down the Russians the way they have been playing lately so push for a draw – Manchester United half-time/full-time punt.

Tennis Betting

It is the final change for some big honours during the regular season on the ATP Tour. It is the final ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event of the season and this time around there is only the famous title up for grabs, as there are no places left to be earned at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals as well. Novak Djokovic,Andy Murray, six-time former winner Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych, Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer and Kei Nishikori have all qualified for the 2015 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Novak Djokovic, who has now spent the 5th highest amount of weeks during his career as World Number One is favourite for the Paris title. That’s not too surprising giving that he has won the last two editions of the event and three times in his career. He simply hasn’t stopped winning recently, having claimed the title in each of his last three events entered (UP Open, China Open and the Shanghai Rolex Masters) having beaten Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray respectively on the way to those respective titles.

There’s no touching him at the moment and Djokovic is 4/6 to win the event for the third time on the bounce. Roger Federer, who beat Rafael Nadal in the final of the Swiss Indoors on the weekend over three sets goes as second-favourite at a price of 7/1. Murray made a run to the semi-finals of the Shanghai Rolex Master where he was demolished by Novak Djokovic.

This is a tough part of the season for Murray as he seems intent on worrying about the Davis Cup Final for Great Britain at the end of the month on clay. That means that he is probably not 100% focused on the hard courts right now. He is on the opposite side of the draw to Djokovic though and therefore could meet Federer at the semi final stage.

BNP Paris Masters Betting Odds

Novak Djokovic 4/6, Roger Federer 7/1, Andy Murray 14/1, Stan Wawrinka 14/1, Rafael Nadal 18/1, Kei Nishikori 20/1, Tomas Berdych 33/1, 50/1 bar

Online betting site Stan James have a big tennis betting promotion running this week for their customers. Place a pre-match wager of £5 or more at odds of at least 1/4 on any match during the BNP Paribas Open and the bookmaker will match the average of your five bets placed with a free bet up to the value of £50. So if you place five 50 bets then you get a free £50 bet back!
